For this 2nd edition of the THV Summit, which was hosted in Amsterdam on (30 June - 1 July 2022) distinguished chair and faculty members present a full day of live cases from two renowned TAVI centres in EMEA for a case-based program dedicated to Aortic Valve Therapies.


During the THV Summit, experienced structural heart valve provided expert insight into the essentials of the TAVI procedure with two live cases. Each case focuses on a specific topic and patient profile using a step-by-step approach to review in detail the key factors to optimising valve therapy from pre-procedural planning to outcomes with special emphasis on efficiency and lifetime management of patients.
